ANDREWS The Andrews Chamber of Commerce is advising the community against doing business with a company sending out emails that advertise about ads in a full color City of Andrews Information Guide.
An email sent out by Chamber President, Julia Wallace says the group is not affliated with the Chamber in any way.
"We refused to distribute their magnets because our local law enforcement does not endorse them and they do not receive any of the funding from the sale of the magnets," Wallace said. "Especially during these lean times, we would like to encourage you to spend your advertising/sponsorship money locally and in a way that not only gets you the most bang for your advertising buck, but also supports our community and not on some fly-by-night, out-of-town company that rides in to town and "takes the money and runs."
According to Wallace the Chamber will be work on a updated City/County map and full-color Community Directory in the very near future, one that will work in such a way that it benefits both the Chamber and the community.
A copy of the email being sent residents and businesses in Andrews reads as follows:
